After years of overly stripping my skin with drying cleansers, I’ve come to terms with the fact that I have sensitive skin. I’ve always had oily skin, but didn’t realize how sensitive it was until I started using more soothing products. I hauled a bunch of new skincare inspired by the change in season and I want to share my thoughts on some of the products that have already made a huge difference to my skin. Oh, and I have a little skincare set for you too.
I’m very loyal to Origins skin care so it’s not a huge surprise that I invested in one of their holiday gift sets. They had a makeup bag filled with minis from my favorite range, the Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief range, including some products I’ve never used before. I didn’t have any expectations at all of the Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Face Cleanser mostly because it’s a cream cleanser and I’m more of a gel kind of girl. I may just be a convert because this cleanser is essentially magic. It cleanses my skin gently and helps it feel calm and hydrated. I find my skin feels just as clean as it does when I use a gel cleanser, but it feels more nourished.
I have been obsessed with using the Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion as a toner. The word “lotion” is a bit deceiving, but this product is a liquid you apply after cleansing with a cotton pad. This further calms the skin and I have found I have less and less little bumps and texture issues since using this in the morning.
I really only get hormonal break outs during one week of the month and I like to use a spot treatment or mask on them to calm them down. I’ve been using the Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask on blemishes at night and it causes the bumps to go down while reducing redness. It’s extremely thick and has this very medicinal/herbal scent that I’m crazy about. Speaking of nice scents, the Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask is an apricot dream. The scent is absolutely delicious and so is the mask. I had extremely peely, dry skin on my chin and after using this one night, I woke up with completely healed and hydrated skin. If you have dry patches or scaly areas like I do, I insist you try this mask out because it’s a total game changer.
I am obsessed with Origins mini gift sets and when I saw this cute Christmas Bauble I knew I had to do a giveaway. Inside the bauble are micro minis of some of my favorite Origins products (Sensory Therapy Peace of Mind, Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask, Modern Friction Scrub, Drink Up Hydrating Lip Balm, and the Original Skin Retexturizing mask). You’ll also be receiving an Origins Facial Brush.
The giveaway will be hosted through RaffleCopter as usual! Giveaway ends December 24th and the winner will be announced that same morning.
